We're a women’s health company developing innovative medical devices for a variety of gynecological procedures.
A PASSION FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH
Our passion is to create intuitive, easy-to-use devices that expand access, improve health outcomes, and reduce complications for women. Our team has developed a whole new approach to intrauterine procedures and is developing a novel intrauterine device (IUD) inserter that vastly simplifies the insertion procedure while aiming to significantly reduce the adverse events inherent with current insertion techniques. We have a pipeline of other products in early development and conceptual phases.
The company’s platform technology is based on a new approach to intrauterine devices–the replacement of the sharp, piercing instrument called a cervical tenaculum with a gentler, suction-based device that offers cervical engagement with no trauma or bleeding, plus facilitated entry into the uterus. The disposable version of this device received FDA 510(k) clearance and has undergone a successful clinical trial. The reusable version of this device is being tested now.
Democratizing IUD Insertion
Our first application on this platform is an innovative, intuitive IUD insertion system developed to decrease the adverse events caused by current insertion tools and techniques. It has the potential to expand access to the IUD worldwide by providing a more intuitive and less painful insertion procedure. Bioceptive is now in clinical stage of this patented device.
A TIMELESS DESIGN TO BE PROUD OF
We sought to create a device where a primary care provider can insert an IUD for the first time and achieve the same outcome as a specialist who has inserted thousands. Any healthcare provider, anywhere in the world now has the potential to insert IUDs safely and consistently.
